Robbery suspect charged in 2 other cases

Paul White. (April 28, 2014)

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A convicted killer who police say was caught on tape in a violent robbery in Grand Rapids is facing more charges in two other cases.

Paul White, the man charged in an April 28 armed robbery at a party store on Grand Rapids’ southwest side, is also facing charges in two more robberies, according to court documents.

The documents show White has been charged with assault with intent to rob in an April 21 incident in the 1100 block of S. Division Avenue in Grand Rapids. He is also accused of assaulting a woman while committing an armed robbery the next day in the 1000 block of W. Fulton Street.

The armed robbery charges come less than a year after White was released from prison, where he spent more than 15 years for second-degree murder in the death of a Detroit teenager. Police said they worked with him on re-entering society after he got out.

While in prison, White married a female corrections officer who brought him to Grand Rapids after he was released. However, they have since split up.

White is also facing a habitual offender charge. If convicted in either of the first two robbery cases, he could face up to life in prison.

White is expected back in court on Friday for a preliminary hearing in the party store robbery case.
